Gaining on Obama and Clinton… We’re on the move!

Rasmussen Reports takes a look at head-to-head matchups between the Huckster and Clinton & Obama

Election 2008: Huckabee vs Clinton & Obama

Clinton 46% Huckabee 43%

Thursday, November 08, 2007

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who recently rose to the top tier of GOP candidates in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, has pulled to within three points of the Democratic frontrunner in a general election match-up. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows Senator Hillary Clinton earning 46% of the vote while Huckabee attracts 43%.

As noted in a recent analysis, Clinton is the unifying theme of Election 2008. In general election match-ups, she consistently attracts between 46% and 49% of the vote regardless of which Republican hopeful is included in the poll.

The latest survey also shows Senator Barack Obama leading Huckabee 49% to 38%.

Because Huckabee is a latecomer to the front row, Rasmussen Reports has not surveyed his general-election strength as frequently as other Republican contenders. But over the year he has gained ground on both Clinton and Obama.

The former First Lady held an eight point lead over Huckabee in both August and September.
